    I have just installed WordPress 2.6 and a custom permalink is not working. Only the default permalink able to display all the post and the pages. Hope someone could help me to resolve this problem. Thank you.

  • I got the same problem. Seems to be an issue with my Windows server however it was working with index.php/mypost when I was running 2.5.1 this really sucks!!!

    same problem as me!

    At least I know Im not the only one experiencing alot of problems. Seems like this release wasn’t ready after all…

    Hopefully google doesn’t remove all my hard earned permalinks till I can find a fix!!

    If this doesnt get fixed soon googles gonna screw me!

    Hmmm. This is troubling….

    For now, I’m only using 2.6 for new installs, until I understand all of the new differences.

    As for the permalink structure, did you delete your old .htaccess file and then rebuild a new one? If not, you might want to try that.

    Good luck with Google. 🙂

    Im not using Apache. Im on a Windows server. Been running wordpress without any major problems with permalinks until now. Its been 4 years since I’ve used the software with a Windows host. I’ve tried several workarounds since upgrading to 2.6 without any success..

    I really wish WordPress thought about us Windows IIS Server users.

    I tried deleting htacess and it didnt work 🙁

    seems like this was an issue they missed during the testing phase for windows users. It was a bug noticed ealier but unfortunately unfixed.

    Well its pretty much the same.. it works if i change the permalink structure to a default option but then I have the problem of all indexed google pages and ive worked far too hard to get top listings on google just to throw them all away.

    I’m experiencing the same problem with Zeus web server on Linux. I hope this is going to be fixed soon as it’s a major pain.

    did it work fine with 2.5.1? using index.php/yourpost

    If it is, then it has to be a bug in this update or a database change.

    I didn’t delete the old htaccess file..somehow..its not workin..

    I’m hosted on Linux and Permalinks don’t work either…don’t feel bad Windows guys! Had to restore my 2.5.1.

    The bitch of it? They knew it didn’t work:

    I am running on a Mac and custom permalinks don’t work either. The error is on the index.php/%postname% structure ; was already present in the 2.6 beta versions.
